I asked for one for Christmas. I have enough money to buy it, it's just that I had nothing else I wanted this year, so when I was asked, that was the first thing that came to mind.
I probably had a better chance of getting it myself though, I'm the only one I know willing to stand in line for hours to get it.
The Wii is definitely the best system this time around in my opinion. I can't wait to play Zelda, as I'm a major Zelda fan. It looks like your a zelda fan as well from your avatar.
I also can't wait for Animal crossing to come out next december.
Do you have Zelda yet? If so, what did you think of it?
Actually, my wife and I only had to wait 13 and a half hours in line to get ours at midnight. We were one of the first 20 people (our Wal-Mart only got 20 units and we were number 18 in line so a LOT of people got turned around to find other stores to camp and wait in line) in our town to buy it, take it home and play it until all the other stores opened up the next morning And yes, when we finally got home around 1am, we got it online, made our Mii's and checked out the Virtual Console and then played Wii Sports till 5:30am.
We ended up getting 3 more remotes and 2 extra nunchuks and yes, we did buy Zelda. I made an agreement with her that I would only play when she is there to watch as well and since we work opposite schedules, it's hard for us to play, but we are 9 and half hours into the game and just absolutely loving it. It's everything you ever expected a Zelda to be and more...I was not sure about the wolf parts when I first heard about it oh so long ago, but once you run around and play as the wolf you see just how much fun it is. Zelda has been great fun and I'm always itching to play more, but I wait till we are together.
We also really want to get ExciteTruck, Call of Duty 3, Trauma Center and Avatar. I think some of those are going to have to wait till Christmas though. Zelda and Wii Sports is more than enough to keep us occupied until then.
The Wii has been one of if not the best party games console we have ever had in our home. Hell, not even just for parties...we play it all the time with just the two of us and my 5 year old is absolutely GOOD at Wii Sports. He's been brought up as a gamer as it is and plays alot already, but the Wii and him are a perfect match. We can't wait for my younger son to age a few more years so the 4 of us can play some Doubles Tennis together. Quality family time and even still, the youngest one watches and acts like us when we play so it wont' be long before he starts to learn it all too.
